8) found out that they are discontinuing Borbet Type Es in 4x108, so I had to work quick. Eric @ Tirerack was able to get me a set. So, without further adue (or is that ado?)...


I choose to get Koyohama AVS ES 100 tires...

I just got a set of those tires too...sitting in the parents' garage right now in 225-50-16.

How do you like the tires?

The tires aren't properly broken in yet, but the are incredible! The new wheel/tire combo has completely transformed the car. Well, that and my quattro fron sway bar. Very stiff sidewall, incredible turn in. Great grip in both dry and wet. VERY quiet (quieter than my all seasons on the 14s"). And the price is great at $53 each (less for these than the all season touring tires from Yoko). The only question is how long will they last? :nervous:
